The initiative started with the participation of more than 40 women of Bab Hutta neighbourhood who planted jars with natural and artificial plants. After they prepared the jars, they distributed them and hung them underneath the windows of the houses in order to water them easily.
Moreover, they distributed plastic trashcans around them neighborhood, in front of houses. On the other hand, a number of volunteers from Burj AL-Luqluq helped to distribute metal trashcans around the neighborhood.
